Any other UK folk interested in this offer?http://www.game.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/HubArticleView?hubId=148256&articleId=148257&catalogId=10201&langId=44&storeId=10151
You trade in your old 3DS with Game or Gamestation and get a 3DS XL & charger for Â£79.99 AND
"You can transfer data from your old 3DS to the new 3DS XL".
They even link to a page of instructions on how to do a system transfer. So I called my local stores to ask about it and guess what... go on have a guess...guessed yet?...
...that's right - the staff didn't know how to do a system transfer & when I told them they said:
"Sorry we don't have wi fi in our stores.
BUT you could pay cash for a 3DS XL, do a system transfer at home and bring in your old 3DS for store credit".
"Okay" I thought and pre ordered one.
BUT WAIT! What is that small print at the bottom of the page?
"Trade-in offer only applies when the trade-in console and Nintendo 3DS XL + AC Adaptor bundle purchase occurs in the same transaction."
and what is the non-special-offer store credit they give for a 3DS? Â£70.And now for my favourite part:
Whilst in the local store paying my deposit the staff showed me the available colours on an ipad via a Google image search. An ipad with a big fat Wi Fi signal and the words NO SIM emblazoned in capitals across the top left corner of the screen. Pretty impressive for a store that don't got no Wi Fi.
